Welcome to a Very Short Introduction soapbox. A short talk lasting 15 minutes from an expert in the field. The talk is free and takes place in Blackwell’s Marquee, next to the Sheldonian Theatre.

Author and lecturer Andrew Robinson looks at the work of familiar geniuses across the arts and sciences including Homer, Leonardo, Tolstoy, Marie Curie, Galileo, and Newton and explores the roles of talent, heredity, parenting, education, training, hard work, intelligence, personality, mental illness, inspiration and luck. Robinson is a visiting fellow of Wolfson College, Cambridge and author of 20 books on the arts and the sciences.
